Following the success of last year's Mihmiverse calendar, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has created a brand new, full-sized (8.5" x 11") 12-month wall calendar for next year!

The theme for this new calendar is "Creatures of the Mihmiverse," with each month dedicated to a different monster/creature from the films of Christopher R. Mihm. Check out the image below for the month of March!

Just like this year's edition, the Mihmiverse 2019 wall calendar will be released in EXTREMELY limited quantities (less than 100 will be produced) and, in a change from this year, individually numbered! PLUS, every calendar will be personally signed by writer/director Christopher R. Mihm!

NOTE: This item is currently in the process of being printed. Actual orders will begin to ship as soon as they are complete! Demand for this item is VERY HIGH, so grab yours now before they're sold out!

$19.99 each
(+$4.99 shipping & handling)


Continue the tradition by adding some retro-monster-cheer to your holiday decorations with the third annual Mihmverse holiday ornament!

This year's exclusive holiday ornament is the mutant bat monster from "Terror from Beneath the Earth!"

Designed as a "companion piece" to last year's "Danny Johnson Saves The World" and 2016's "The Monster of Phantom Lake" ornaments, this limited-edition collectible is lovingly hand-crafted by members of the Mihm family, individually numbered and includes the year.

Because our supply is limited to no more than 25 ornaments, we highly recommend ordering NOW to ensure shipment in time for the holidays...AND to make sure you get one, because once they're sold out...no more will be made—EVER!

As the "October screening season" comes to a close, writer/director Christopher R. Mihm has refocused his attention on editing the next Mihmiverse film. As of now, 25 minutes of the film is complete and, should everything continue apace, the movie should be ready for release in the Spring.

To help stimulate your sense of anticipation, check out an exclusive still from the new film below! In it, we see the star of the film (and first lady of the Mihmiverse), Stephanie Mihm, in full "Queen of Snakes" makeup (courtesy of Mihmiverse-Master-Monster-Maker Mitch Gonzales)!

Don't forget, "Queen of Snakes" still needs YOUR help! A LOT of post-production work still needs to be done—and that means we STILL need contributions!

Contribute TODAY and not only will you be directly responsible for the creation of the Mihmiverse, you'll be entitled to have a single name* of your choosing listed in the contributors section of the closing credits of the film(s), a customized, framable document certifying your contribution and one (1) copy of the finished film(s)!

Additional copies of the film(s) and/or world premiere tickets may be pre-ordered as "add-ons" ($10 each) with the purchase of at least one credit! Credits can even be given as gifts! What's more unique and/or special than your loved one seeing their name in the end credits of a movie AND on the IMDb?

Separate credits by commas, & or "and." 

*A single credit is defined as the name of one (1) person or corporate entity. Any credit requiring the word "and," an ampersand (&), and/or a comma (except when part of a legal company name) will constitute multiple credits and MUST BE paid for separately.

NOTE: The contributor program is an "equal exchange" program, which means specifically that those participating have NO SAY in the decisions or actions taken by anyone involved in the actual production of the film and are NOT entitled to ANY possible future profits earned by the film, derivative works, and/or merchandise created for or featuring elements from the film. Becoming an contributor does not entitle the participant to ANY ownership WHATSOEVER of the finished film or associated elements.

In writer/director Christopher R. Mihm's "post-apocalyptic-spaghetti-Midwestern," a man with no name is forced into a world of danger and bloodshed after he saves a scientist and a gifted child from a horde of radiation-scarred mutants. Though he would prefer to stay hidden until he can escape to a new life, something about the child—and the murderous "Death Dealers" hunting her—makes him realize he has no choice but to protect her or risk being responsible for the potential extinction of the human race!

The DVD contains a high quality digital transfer of the film and several exclusive special features, including a blooper reel, two photo galleries, hidden surprises, feature-length commentary with writer/director Christopher R. Mihm, English subtitles, Esperanto audio & subtitles and much more!

Feature Run Time: 1 hour, 28 minutes. Black & White/Color, Widescreen, NOT RATED.

Welcome to the newest feature in the Mihmiverse Monthly where we talk to YOU, the fans! Every month, we're choosing a random Mihmivite and ask them a few Mihmiverse-related questions in an attempt to get to know them better and find out what they REALLY think about the films of Christopher R. Mihm!

This month, we interview Dan Flanagan!

Introduce yourself to the Mihmiverse!
My name is Dan Flanagan and I am from Jacksonville Florida. I am the lead singer of a fun-punk band called 5 Cent Psychiatrist and I run a small D.I.Y. record label called Acoustic Fury Records.

When and how did you discover the films of Christopher R. Mihm?
I discovered the Mihmiverse 8 years ago at a small horror film festival in the Hudson Valley area of New York (where I once resided) called Hudson Horror Show. I saw "The Monster Of Phantom Lake" in a bin of DVDs for a dollar. Easily it's the best dollar I ever spent and my favorite purchase from that day! It opened up a whole world of fun and opportunity!

If you had to pick just ONE, which of the Mihmiverse films would be your favorite?
Though I love all the Mihm movies, "The Monster Of Phantom Lake" is my favorite simply because it was my "deflowering" to the Mihmiverse.

Tell us how you, in particular, show your "Mihmiverse pride!"
My Mihmiverse pride has been shown over the years as I have written, recorded, and performed two songs that have been used in the films! "The Late Night Double Feature" theme by Bad Horse and "Do The Squito" by 5 Cent Psychiatrist were both my babies!

Where would you like to see the Mihmiverse go in the future?
In the future, I want the Mihmiverse to stay indie, DIY, and manageable for writer/director Christopher R. Mihm. That said, I would love to see some kaiju and giant monster flicks, and maybe even an Ultraman-esque "TV show" for YouTube.

It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958)
Directed by Edward L. Cahn
Starring Marshall Thompson and Shirley Patterson

The year is 1973 and something terrible has happened during the first manned mission to Mars. A second rocket is sent to investigate but finds only one survivor who tells unbelievable stories concerning a homicidal alien monster. On the way back to Earth, the tales are revealed to be true when the creature is found stowed away on the ship! Death, mayhem and dubious science ensues. If the plot sounds familiar, it's because it's almost identical to that of Ridley Scott's 1979 masterpiece "Alien."

"It! The Terror From Beyond Space" may not be as good as "Alien," but it's still fun and a perfect example of a 1950's B-grade science fiction monster movie!

Highly recommended!
— Christopher R. Mihm
Cheap Thrills

During the 1930s, 40s and 50s, a number of small Hollywood film studios cranked out hundreds of extremely low-budget B-movies. Collectively (and accurately) called "Poverty Row" studios, they made everything from cheap musicals...to cheap westerns...to yes, cheap horror films. One of the most prolific of these studios was Monogram Pictures: cheesemakers from 1931 to 1953. Let's take a look at some of their films and see if you can match the plots with the titles.

1. (1934) An ancient curse and a killer ape are locked up in a spooky old mansion. The most recognizable name in the cast is Gabby Hayes (not to be confused with Michael Kaiser's Deputy Hayes).
2. (1939) How's THIS for a plot: An Insurance agent-physician collects on policies of men murdered by a disfigured resident of the home for the blind where he acts as doctor-on-call. Bela Lugosi stars.
3. (1941) On a spooky island, three stranded travelers find an evil doctor working in a torture chamber with foreign spies, ghosts and the undead. Both Bela Lugosi and Peter Lorre turned down the lead role, which eventually went to Henry Victor.
4. (1942) Bela Lugosi again! This time, he's a scientist who kills virginal brides and extracts gland fluid to keep his ancient wife alive and young.
5. (1951) A ghost, a mad Doctor and the Bowery Boys. Who could ask for anything more?

A. "Ghost Chasers"
B. "House of Mystery"
C. "King of the Zombies"
D. "The Corpse Vanishes"
E. "The Human Monster"

"House of Ghosts"
A Love Letter to William Castle from Writer/Director Christopher R. Mihm

Mr. Mihm asked me if I would like to write something for a new column in this month's issue of the Mihmiverse Monthly and, after thinking about it and since this is the time of year for "spooks and spectres," it seemed writing about one of my favorite Mihmiverse movies, "House of Ghosts" would be a perfect choice. However, I don't think I can effectively write about the film without first talking about William Castle.

William Castle
"House of Ghosts" is Christopher R. Mihm's loving tribute to the films of William Castle. If you don't know the name William Castle, you probably know his films—most likely "House on Haunted Hill" and "The Tingler" with the late, great Vincent Price, and/or the original black & white classic, "13 Ghosts." Over a 35-year career, Mr. Castle directed over 60 movies and was a producer, writer and actor. (Sound like anyone you know?)

The films of William Castle were firmly situated in the realm of the B-movie. There were no Oscar dreams for "Homicidal" or "Mr. Sardonicus," but Mr. Castle knew his audience and what would bring people out to the theater because he was the "King of the Gimmick!" First, he would often appear as himself at the beginning of his movies to explain the dangers the audience was about to be exposed to. Then, the real fun began.

For his film "Macabre," he stationed nurses in the movie theater lobby, and would have hearses parked outside and offered moviegoers an insurance policy issued by Lloyd's of London against the possibility of "Death by Fright." With "House on Haunted Hill," he arranged for a glowing green plastic skeleton to "float" through the auditorium. My personal favorite (and one of his most infamous) was when, for "The Tingler" he had seats wired up to vibrate at random times to make people scream during the movie!

William Castle left a legacy of making movies fun. They weren't great art and didn't pretend to be. They were entertaining and Castle added a nice splash of showmanship to the mix. As such, there is a very direct line between the films of William Castle and the films of Christopher R. Mihm, particularly with "House of Ghosts," Mr. Mihm's 2012 film which is billed explicitly as a tribute to Mr. Castle.

"House of Ghosts" starts with the director warning the audience of evil ghosts that may attempt to drag their souls to the "other side." To prevent this from happening, the audience has been issued "Fear Shields" to block their vision from the shocking images on the screen. A wonderful gimmick that would have made Mr. Castle proud!

I don't want to give away too much of the film for those who haven't seen it, but there are some great performances that really should be mentioned. The film is filled with lots of Mihmiverse regulars and seeing them all together is a treat.

Mike Cook as a "flamboyant" dress shop owner in a toupee that should have gotten a co-starring credit is worth the price of admission. The beautiful and talented Stephanie Mihm is wonderful as a lonely cat-lady who is mourning the loss of her son. The always-entertaining James (Dear God, No!) Norgard plays a washed up film director living in his past successes and exchanging barbs with Catherine Hansen as his much younger girlfriend. For my money, Ms. Hansen steals the movie. Her character is bored to tears and starts hitting the bottle pretty heavily. Her comic timing and sharp wit make this a perfect role for her. It is also nice to see her without horror makeup on.

Michael G. Kaiser reprises his role as Deputy Hayes in a brief cameo and, of course, appears as a monster. "House of Ghosts" also marks the first appearance of fan-favorite character General Castle (played by Mihmiverse regular Mark Haider) but, if I told you where and why you see him, I'd be giving away too much of the fun!

"House of Ghosts" is a wonderful homage to William Castle and a great part of the Mihmiverse catalog. If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend hopping over to sainteuphoria.com and picking up a copy! I think you will be glad you did!
